What's in a name?


The Vintage Modern Wife: Say My Name Link Up

A blog name that is.

Today I am linking up with Amber and 2 other bloggers to share the background of my blog name.

-------------------------

I have actually had a post similar to this in my drafts forever so I'm glad I finally got the kick to post it.

My blog url and actual title may be a little confusing to some. (and well to me too) 

 I was at a loss for what to name it and I wanted it to be different.  I'm not knocking any one's blog name but I wanted something no one else had or would probably never come close to.

Aimless Translation 
(often wrongly called Aimless Transition).   

 We could take it literally:

Aimless -
 Without purpose or

 direction.

Translation -  a change to a

 different substance, form, or 

appearance 


Or philosophically:

Trying to figure out life and other

things.  Not knowing where you are

going.


The actual URL -
 diesunddas33.  or dies und das 33.

dies und das is German for this and that and 33 is my favorite number.  
I wanted to incorporate German because of how important it is to me and I knew my blog would be random...a bit of this and that.  




So that is my strange and long way of how I came up with my blog name.  Maybe someday I'll change it, or maybe I'll keep it to confuse everyone.  :)

How did you come up with your name?  Link up or let me know...I find this kind of thing very interesting!

I've always really enjoyed your blog name! I'm trying to do German. Das auto ist blau?? Ich liebe das ragen-bogen? I don't know. I sometimes would sit in on the German classes at school lol. Chuss!
